Notable events[edit]

  • Rangers completing a domestic treble of the Premier Division title, FA Cup and League Cup.
  • The return of Celtic striker Frank McAvennie to the club from Aston Villa in January, four years after he left them for a second spell at West Ham United.
  • Celtic's £1.5million pre-season move for West Ham United winger Stuart Slater.
  • The pre-season sale of Rangers striker Paul Rideout to Everton for £500,000.
  • Trevor Steven returning to Rangers at the start of the season after a year in France with Marseille, costing them a Scottish record fee of £2.4million - though less than half the £5.5million they had received for him in August 1991.
  • Striker Duncan Shearer, who had played in England since 1983, finally played professional football in his homeland at the age of 30 after joining Aberdeen from Blackburn Rovers for £500,000.
  • Rangers progressing to the semi-final group stage of the European Cup, eliminating English league champions Leeds United in the second knockout stage.
  • Aidrieonians going into the European Cup Winners' Cup, having entered as the previous season's losing FA Cup finalists to league champions Rangers, ended the season relegated from the Premier Division.
  • Jim McLean's final season as manager of Dundee United, bringing to an end his 22-year reign.
